8. DERBY DREAM BET: The Dream Bet provides Winner with a free one hundred thousand dollar ($100,000) win wager on one (1) horse participating in the 2012 138th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville, KY (or another race selected by Sponsor and Churchill Downs in their sole discretion). Winner has not won one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000), but has simply won the right to direct one (1) free win wager in the amount of one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) which a Sweepstakes Entity will place on one (1) horse selected by the Winner. The free wager itself has no cash value to Winner and cannot be transferred or redeemed for cash by Winner. Winner will win the proceeds, if any, of the free wager they direct, to be redeemed as follows: if the free wager placed by Sweepstakes Entity results in a “winning” pari-mutuel ticket (“Ticket”) (as determined solely by the official outcome of the 2012 138th Kentucky Derby), Sponsor will deliver possession of the winning Ticket to Winner, which Winner must take Ticket to the designated window at the track to collect the proceeds in accordance with all track policies and procedures pertaining to such payouts. All risk of loss of the winning Ticket (if any) shall pass to Winner at the time Winner receives possession of the Ticket. In the event the Ticket is lost, stolen, destroyed or otherwise not presented for payment in accordance with all track policies and procedures, it will not be replaced and Winner will not receive any proceeds/payout for the free wager. ARV of Prize may vary, depending on the outcome/proceeds from the free wager. If the 2012 138th Kentucky Derby is cancelled for any reason, the Dream Bet portion of Prize will not be awarded and the remaining elements of Prize shall constitute full satisfaction of Sponsor’s Prize obligation to Winner and no additional compensation will be awarded.

Winner must direct the free wager in accordance with these Rules and the instructions of Churchill Downs and/or its agents and representatives. Winner must direct the free wager in person, and may not transfer or designate any other individual to direct the wager on Winner’s behalf.

Sponsor’s and Churchill Downs’ decisions on all matters pertaining to the Dream Bet are final and binding.

Recording: Sponsor may choose to record and/or distribute via any media now known or hereafter devised Winner’s participation in the Dream Bet, or any element thereof, in its sole discretion. If Sponsor, in its sole discretion, elects to incorporate the audio and/or video recording of the Dream Bet, or any element thereof (the “Recording”), into television shows or any other media, the Recording will not be considered an employment opportunity, and Winner will not be entitled to compensation or credit therefore.

Sponsor and Churchill Downs have the right, in their sole discretion, to disqualify Winner, cause the Dream Bet portion of the Prize to be forfeited, and/or remove Winner from the 2012 138th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs at any time, if Winner’s behavior is deemed by Sponsor and/or Churchill Downs to be disruptive or if it may or does cause damage to person, property, or reputation of Sponsor and/or Churchill Downs or if it otherwise violates the policies of Sponsor and/or Churchill Downs, or if Winner does not follow the directions of Sponsor and Churchill Downs at all times.
